ZAHORSKI / MIART (FRA) have withdrawn and been replaced by CHOCK / BATES (USA).
Sarah HECKEN (GER) has withdrawn and has yet to be replaced.
Poor Tiffany & Alexis. I was so looking forward to seeing them skate. Hope Alexis' rehab is going ok.
On the other hand, if Chock/Bates to attend the TEB, does that mean they got BYE at the Pacific Sectionals? (11/15-11/19)
Joshi Helgesson will she get that spot? (instead of Hecken=W) Battle of the sisters
Can someone tell me why Elena Glebova did not get a spot on the Grand Prix, I thought she skated well at Finlandia (but i guess she did not get the minimum score to attend a GP am I right :(
Glebova probably just wasn't selected for a Grand Prix because of her competitive history. It was much harder to get Grand Prix assignments with only 10 ladies per event an Leonova & Kostner taking 3 spots each.
Not sure if anyone has posted about this yet, but Joubert has withdrawn due to injury.
I'm sad for Brian Joubert, but happy for the alternative skater who received the assignment. I am of the opinion not to waste precious little slots GP has created this season. Romain Ponsart will gain valuable experience.
I am still bummed for the unfilled male skater slot at COC due to Brian J's last minutes withdrawal. While we cannot plan for an unexpected injury, I was so hoping for Keegan Messing to receive at least one GP assignment.
